OK, so it may not be your first question, but you may come to wonder "what's one27 anyway?"
Really it's just me being stubborn, or different, or I missed the memo, but there are 1001 (a million?) businesses that use the owner name as the business name. I have no problem with that. It is their show after all. For me, I just never liked the sound of it, so I needed to come up with something else.
Also, now you have no reason to forget my birthday! Feel free to send a card when January 27 comes around.
I have been enchanted by the power of a great photo for as long as I can remember. There is a special magic that comes with the only way I've ever found to stop time.
I got my first camera when I was about 12, and began with making images of nature and landscapes. As I grew I began to appreciate the power of the expression on a person's face, whether that be one of elation, frustration, contentment, or despair.
I spread my time among a myriad of active pursuits including hockey and mountain biking, but I always have a camera at the ready. You never know when you'll need to stop time.
There are a variety of reasons to photograph man-made spaces, whether interior or exterior. Each reason has similarities in how we shoot, based on the ultimate goal of the photograph.
For businesses, it may be the interior of your building, the exterior, or the back entrance, but the goal is to invite potential visitors to experience your business before they arrive. Liking the look of your space, or just knowing what to expect can have a big influence on whether they come for a visit.
For craftspeople, whether they be architects, builders, or designers, photographs are how you share your work, and how you'll be judged by potential new clients. If those photos aren't as good as they can be and accurately reflect the vision you had for the space, not to mention the showcase of your skill, you may lose business.
Your web site is where potential visitors/clients look to check you out, so show them your best side. It could be the pool you designed, the master suite you built, the company conference room, or the main bar. The more you show, the more comfortable and invited your visitors will feel. But only if you show off your best with the best photo. The right light, the right angle, the right view, otherwise you send them away!
We can shoot multiple angles or even 360-degree panoramas.
Unless you live in a cave, you probably see a lot of faces over the course of a day.
Let's face it, intentional or not, good or bad, you make judgements based on those faces.
Great photos of the people in your business can be inviting and give visitors someone to recognize. They can also add personality and style to the faces, something people can identify with.
Some businesses sell physical products. Customers want to see those products. High-quality photography adds credibility to product offerings. Sometimes a well-conceived setup of the product in use is even better
Other businesses have no products. They sell services. It's not as obvious what should be photographed. However, customers will more likely look at a photo than they will spend time reading your service description. A well-designed photo of the execution of your service will get more attention, and those same customers may spend time reading after the photo has grabbed their attention.
